Hi guys,
I\'m a noob around here and I have read the majority if not a good portion of the PMMA threads. My concern much like everyone else are the potential side effects. I can deal with lumpy or misfigured penis (so long as it works) but the chance of dying from pulmonary embolism or any other complication is something that would prevent me from having this procedure done.

Please educate me on this topic

maybe I was mistaken when I read about this actress
inyourface.ocregister.com/2009/12/01/why...astic-surgery/13113/
her death was explained as \"She chose to have injections of microspheres of PMMA plastic (polymethylmethacrilate), which led to a blockage in the main artery in her lungs, the Argentine newspaper Clarinreported.\"
